understanding of these habits help us better achieve our learning goals?
This is the question Art Costa Bena Kallick set out to answer with their study of the Habits of Mind. In 'Learning and Leading with Habits of Mind' Costa and Kallick identify sixteen habits which when utilised promote deeper understanding, unlock creativity, encourage reflective thinking and scaffold problem solving for individuals and groups. Exploring the Habits of Mind leads you away from definitions of intelligence as a fixed unitary attribute towards an understanding that it is a diverse set of traits and dispositions and that its growth is within the control of the individual.

How to Teach Critical Thinking

How to Teach Critical Thinking | Serious Play | Scoop.it
Critical thinking skills are skills that children (and adults) need to learn to be able to solve problems. This includes analyzing and evaluating information that is provided, whether that information is through observation, experience or communication.

It is a part of scientific, mathematical, historical, economic and philosophical thinking, all of which are necessary for the future development of our society. Here are a few ways to teach critical thinking that can be used whether you are a teacher or a parent.
